Outsourcing payroll

January 24, 2023

Managing payroll is complicated. You need to make sure you’re deducting the right tax, as well as correctly managing auto-enrolment pension contributions, student loans, benefits in kind, expenses, and so on.

All of that needs to be done on time, every month, so that your staff receive the right pay when they expect it.

If you don’t have several years of experience running payroll, or hours of free time to spend on it, outsourcing it is often the best option when you’re running a small business.

Why outsource?

Reduce errors

Mistakes on your payroll system can be time-consuming to fix and frustrating for employees. In the worst cases, late or inaccurate filing could result in penalties from HMRC.

By outsourcing, you can carry on with running your business knowing payroll is in the hands of trained, experienced professionals.

Save money

For small businesses, outsourcing can often be much more cost-efficient than employing and training a payroll professional in-house.

By letting us handle your payroll you’ll also save the cost of buying and running specialist software.

Save time

By freeing up the time you or your staff would otherwise have spent on payroll, you can make more resources available for the core areas of your business.
